VTIPL Conference: Building Local Resilience -- Inspiring Climate Action!
Inspiring local climate-related action in our communities is the overall theme of VTIPL's 2017 conference -- on Saturday, October 21 at First Congregational Church in Manchester. Plans are coming together for a fantastic event! In addition to having Deb Markowitz as our Keynote Speaker, workshops leaders, such as State Representative Robin Chesnut-Tangerman, will share information and engage participants on topics ranging from communicating effectively with our legislators to understanding and caring for our watersheds, and organizing locally.

Registration for the conference will begin next month. This year, we are inviting congregations to help us by sponsoring the conference with a donation of $50.00 or more. The names of sponsoring congregations will be included in printed materials and on the website. Send an email to VTIPL for more information.

Presentation Proceeding Release of An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power
Dee Gish, a member of VTIPL's Board, was trained by Al Gore's Climate Reality Project to give presentations about global climate change. She has volunteered to give presentations around the state before Al Gore's new film -- An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power is released on August 4th. Contact Dee to schedule a presentation.

Rally and Actions in Lebanon, NH Protesting Pipeline in the Upper Valley
This event on August 12 is to protest the building of a gas pipeline running from West Lebanon to Hanover, NH, and the building of 60,000 gallon above-ground storage tanks just above the Connecticut River. The details of the day are being planned; the Green in Lebanon, NH is the meeting place. For more information, contact Gregory Wilson at 802-333-9102 or email.
